And I think claptrap was character of the year
I called The Walking Dead as GOTY. So happy for Telltale. Now they will rise as one of the "big" studios!
Not surprised The Walking Dead got Game Of The Year, pretty mediocre competition.
I know nothing of this "Journey" game @_@

Sequels, sequels, sequels... who needs them? The Walking Dead series takes us back to a style of gaming that was long thought to be dead and almost perfects it. Better to be daring than to stay safe with countless sequels. The Walking Dead is a series not to be missed especially for PC veterans out there. Roll on series 2! [Derp]

and with The Journey as boring as it is (at least for me) it's certainly a daring and original title.
Journey deserved every award it received, definitely one of the best games this year and this generation in my opinion.

Really glad The Walking Dead won GOTY as well.

What exactly is it about? what do you do?
I played some of it and seriously didn't have a clue and gave up. :S
Yeees, I voted for Walking Dead and Telltale! glad to see everyone finally agree with me!

It is quite difficult to explain as it does act as more of an interactive experience than a fully fledged game. In terms of actual gameplay there is 'a lot' to do. Simply put, you just travel to reach the top of a mountain.

However the game immerses you into a emotional journey to the top of that mountain through the music, visuals, and the multiplayer aspect. It is really something that can only be explained by playing through it all.
Definitely something that needs to be finished in one playthrough.
Not the type of game for everyone though.
Walking Dead seriously THAT good?
I heard it's good, but GOTY material? I had no idea. I also have no interest... but that's definitely surprising for me.
It's pretty darn amazing. I shed tears more than once, and I'm not usually one to suffer from leaky eyes.
I saw what Journey looked like.. and... Nope, looks boring :L
